online shopping

I love online shopping : )

Even better is when I can find free shipping! The recent LLBean catalog arrived with a code for free shipping, no matter the size of the order! That sealed the deal that we would be sending their pine tabletop decorations as gifts to a few family members!

I just ordered mini silk parachutes for the boys from Magic Cabin. I almost paid $7 for shipping, until I did a quick google search for "magic cabin coupon codes". The first site that popped up included a free shipping code!

Amazon gave me a free 3 month membership to their "prime" service (which offers free 2 day shipping on Amazon products for an annual fee.) In the past, I always tried to meet their $25 minimum for free shipping - and lived with the often long wait for books and other things. After using it for 3 months, I split the annual cost with my sister and have loved having items shipped quickly and across the country when necessary. So, even though it's not free -- it has still saved me from having to order things 2-3 weeks early (when more likely I would end up paying for shipping because I wasn't ordering 2-3 weeks early!)

Steve Spangler is also offering free shipping this weekend only, no minimum purchase. Email me if you want that code!

I ordered our Christmas cards online again this year -- Shutterfly now offers collage cards, and I squeezed 9 pictures onto our card. They are another company that offers lots of coupons, and they, too, are currently offering free shipping for orders over $50. They also ship fast. I ordered the cards Thursday evening, and they should be here Monday or Tuesday.

In past years, I've been done with Christmas shopping by now (some years by late October!) but this year I've only just begun. I adore the convenience of online shopping - especially when I have procrastinated.

Are you done with your shopping? Have you begun? Do you shop online for most or not at all? Just curious : )
